Simple Friends and Get Well Wishes

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE - Bermuda Celery Hunters, and for today's TWILIGHT TUESDAY INSPIRATION CHALLENGE #59 - Sparkle and Monday's MOJO MONDAY # 120 Sketch. I am stretching my comfort zone this year and trying to do challenges that really challenge me like today's colors and Monday's sketch. I am a simple stamper so this sketch made my heart skip a few beats. LOL. I stamped my focal image in black on white cs then colored with
copics G12, G29, BG49, RV000, RV10, RV11. After coloring I covered the circles with stickles. My dp is from My Minds Eye - Just Dreamy. I used 2 stamp sets both from TREEHOUSE STAMPS called Simple Wishes and Friends & Lattes. Friends and Lattes is now offered in Digi. Yeah! Gotta love them digi, no shipping, no waiting for the mailman. Yeepee. Hop over to the store to see what else is under the Digi line. Ashley is on a roll. I made my own background for panel 3 simular to the dp I used by using the large solid dot from Simple Wishes and stamping it randomly with Handsome Hunter, Rose Red and Bermuda Bay on certainly celery cs. My border is from Martha Stewart's line (gotta love'em). Giga Scallop circle for my focal panel matt with my focal image cut out and popped up. My satin ribbon was dyed using my copic marker, layered with sheer celery colored ribbon and trimmed on the end for the sketch. My sentiment is from Simple Wishes. Hope you like it but now I have to go to work seeing spots. LOL.

ETA: I think the teen digit temps are affecting my brain. I just looked at the color challenge again it reads :Desert - pink (anything but cardstock), well now I have a new New Years Resolution - to read all challenges in their entirety before creating. :-0 bc I am just soooo embarrassed. I will have to do this over when I get home, already at work right now. ggrrr
